03/14/19 -- HB 612 -- Transfers the MO State Council on the Arts to the office of the Lieutenant Governor

Bill Number: 
HB 612
Bill Purpose: 
Transfers the MO State Council on the Arts to the office of the Lieutenant Governor
Date of Vote: 
03/14/19
My Vote: 
Yes
Explanation: 

HB 612, introduced by Representative Mary Elizabeth Coleman (Republican - District 97) simply transfers control of the MO State Council on the Arts to the Lieutenant Governor's office instead of the Department of Economic Development.  I am not fully informed regarding everything the Council on the Arts does, but it doesn't seem to make sense that they be part of the Department of Economic Development.

The transfer does not create any new costs for taxpayers, and I don't particularly care who they report to.  I voted "yes" for lack of any particular reason to object.
